The trails are open year-round to all forms of foot travel (unless otherwise posted).

Whether you're looking for a long hike, a short outing with the kids, or even a trail run—the Blue-Blazed Hiking Trails have something for everyone. Use our interactive trails map and the Connecticut Walk Book to start planning your next hiking adventure today!
